Students worked on their theses for the past five months under the supervision of a Hertie School faculty member. The master's thesis is an independent research project in which students apply the theoretical and methodological knowledge acquired in their studies to a practical policy problem relevant to their study programme. One objective of the master's thesis is to make use of the insights the students have gained in their studies for a practical institutional purpose.
